If there’s one thing I always get if it’s on the menu – it’s spring rolls. I love the combo of sweet and salty flavor, all the textures, and that crunch! However, they’re not the most WW-friendly thing out there, often deep fried and super oily. I decided to take that same flavor profile and turn it into a low-carb bowl option that’s WW friendly and easily modified to be paleo and keto as well. These Spring Roll Bowls are a great lunch or dinner option and are super easy to throw together, making them an absolute weeknight win. Enjoy!

Making Spring Roll Bowls

This recipe is so great because it’s so versatile and your spring roll bowl can easily be adjusted based on what you have available. No ground chicken? Swap it for turkey or pork. Don’t eat meat? Swap it for tofu. Pale/Keto? Skip the chili sauce and rice paper. And so on. You can really modify this based on what you have on hand.

To make it, you’ll need:

  • ground meat of choice
  • fresh garlic, ginger, green onion, red onion which will give your meat lots of flavor
  • some sesame oil to add a nutty flavor
  • rice vinegar and soy sauce (or coconut aminos) to flavor your veggies
  • slaw mix, which is your veggie base and makes up the volume of this dish
  • mayo of choice mixed with sriracha and some rice veingar to make a spicy mayo
  • sweet chili sauce for some sweetness
  • puffed rice paper which you’ll crumble on top for some crunch and to be the spring roll “shell” part of the dish

You’ll start by heating your oil, adding garlic, onion, and green onion. Once the onion is mostly cooked, add your meat, breaking it up as you cook it. Add in your ginger and cook the meat thoroughly. Add your veggies, your soy sauce/rice vinegar, and a dash of sriracha. Mix it all up and you’ve got an easy, delicious base.

Next, you’ll puff your rice paper. Heat some oil in a pan, add the rice paper, and it should puff up in a few seconds. Remove from heat, let cool, and crumble. Now it’s time to build your spring roll bowl. Mix up your spicy mayo and drizzle it on top. Finish with a drizzle of sweet chili sauce, crispy rice paper, and some chopped green onion. Enjoy! I eat this bowl hot when I make it fresh, and then enjoy it cold for lunch the next day. If you’re planning to save leftovers, just don’t add the sauce/topping until it’s time to eat.
